I apologise in advance if this question has already been asked, but I searched and couldn't find anything remotely related to it.
I recently installed XAMPP 1.8.1 in order to duplicate my WordPress site for testing purposes. I'm using Windows 7.
I went through the whole of the instructions contained in http://lifeinthegrid.com/do-you-localhost-your-wordpress/ I got to the part about saving permalinks, etc., etc and did each of these but they resulted in blank pages, however when I checked the logs it said everything had been installed correctly.
When I navigate to http://localhost/testshanwatts/ all I get is a blank page. I have both Apache and MySQL running in XAMPP.
I'm a complete newbie and am not sure if this is an XAMPP issue or a Duplicator issue, but am hoping that someone might advise me on what to do or where to go in order to solve my problem?
